Silicon Knights Developing Eternal Darkness Sequel?
 

In an interview with Games Industry, Silicon Knights' Denis Dyack has revealed that the company is working on a sequel to one of their "most requested" IP's.

Quote:

Interestingly, he refers to last generation and "this gen" because Silicon Knights has already moved on to new consoles. Dyack's not ready to talk about the next-gen project, but given his comments on Eternal Darkness recently, we have a strong suspicion that Silicon Knights is actually working on the fan favorite.

"We're really excited and we're working on our next generation stuff. We're working on an IP that's our most requested and we're really excited about that."

This would be amazing. Easily one of the most finely crafted games of all time.

It still blows my mind to see the games they have made since then, I just don't understand where all that talent and passion went. I did four full playthroughs of this game back in the day, I literally played until I had done everything, and I often tell myself that I need to go back to it. I'd give anything for this sequel to be real, but only if it lives up to the first game.

I'd love to see a new Eternal Darkess, although it's dangerous - the prequel could easily smash any successor.

Ahhh, it would be ABOUT TIME. Im sure some will gripe about a few of the mechanics here and there with the original, but Eternal Darkness was a stellar game. Interesting from start to finish. Loved the story-line and suspense.

They'd better just not botch it with junk. Keep a great story-line, keep the suspense, and character development, and don't water it down with too much constant action. Don't think better graphics is a substitute for substance.

Awesome if this is true:D:D:D

I agree 1000%

About the only way to honor Eternal Darkness is a reboot, not a sequel.

I was playing Eternal Darkness the way it should be played. In the dark. About a foot away from my "giant" (at the time) 36" TV with a wired controller.

All of a sudden my computer monitor clicked on across the room and the entire room filled with light.

I actually screamed.

I would buy an Eternal Darkness reboot/sequel Day One.

Sequel? Eternal Darkness can't have a sequel, the story was self contained.

Drake_NS 03-25-2012 09:15 AM

If I remember correctly, Eternal Darkness was originally being developed as an N64 title. A prime example of how fantastic story, gameplay, and design can trump what is honestly fairly poor visuals (for a Cube title, at least), making perhaps one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences for that system.

Orphiuchus 03-25-2012 09:40 AM

Yes please.

Major Dan 03-25-2012 10:44 AM

I want more TOO Human damn it. I have never played Eternal Darkness, not big in to horror games or movies.

Evil Avatar 03-25-2012 11:22 AM

Wouldn't their most requested IP be Legacy of Kain?

Emabulator 03-25-2012 11:56 AM

I'd be up for an Eternal Darkness sequel.

I wonder if it will be a Wii U launch title?

It would be great to get a "disc read error" at a pivotal m

Damn Phone!

Anyway,
At a pivitol moment, especially if the next console is disc-free.

Anenome 03-25-2012 12:22 PM

Obviously they can't call it 'Eternal Darkness', Nintendo must have that IP locked down. So, they are probably pulling a Prometheus. Or would Nintendo actually relent?

Mebbe. Does Nintendo ever farm out a beloved IP to a 3rd party? I suppose they did with Retro and Metroid? But didn't Nintendo take a minority stake in Retro for that...

Spritual sequel would be plenty - plenty of lovecraftian stories and themes to play with. Although technically, you didn't beat the game unless you beat the game 3 times - choosing a different relic at the beginning on each playthrough, suggesting that the story continues in parallel dimensions, and only then just to keep things in harmony.

Doesn't seem like it'd take much to upset that balance for a sequel story...

Syl 03-25-2012 06:19 PM

Yeah, i could easily see Eternal Darkness have a story, just focus on a different family.

Nintendo owns Retro outright now, The purchased them durring the development of Prime. They did allow Sega to make the F-Zero game for GC and Namco did Star Fox: Assault (also for GC). Some series, like Mario Party were never made by Nintendo until recently (it was Hudson until MP9).

Anenome 03-25-2012 09:18 PM

True, true.

I'll fap if they do this.

Radiozo 03-26-2012 07:57 AM

Not sure I would dare to play a reboot or new version of this game now that the sound and graphics are that much better. The original is the most scary thing Ive ever played.

Damn. I wish I was that clever on purpose.
Apparently, my iPhone is. Siri has a sense of humor, I lack.

It would be if Crystal Dynamics didn't win the IP in a suit.

blackzc 03-27-2012 03:16 AM

If anyone is reading this that is working on the game. Please don't pretend its a movie to much. Id like to buy another eternal darkness.

Reckless Aband0n 03-27-2012 12:47 PM

The original is still so good. I left my old GC and games back home with the parents and flew through this one over last Christmas break. I tried to keep my Sanity meter as low as possible so that I could re-live all of those wft moments and it was glorious.

I agree... More Too Human is welcomed, they did well with what they did, but they promised too much and turned a lot of people away.
